Just an Update

Some of you may have read this
Hello all! I just thought I would give and update on what is going on here at the studio.

Okay, during most of 2011 I've been busy illustrating for a few children's books one of which is an alphabet book featuring birds (the other books have had no interest from editors). The writer of the ABC book has sent dummy books out to editors and so far no nibbles but three rejections. At least we are hearing back from them. The first time I sent out packets I never heard back from anyone.

I have also started a large commission from New Acropolis. This means you will be seeing a lot less personal work from me being posted.

In addition to the New Acropolis work, I will be working on another book cover. The subject matter of this book, simply stated, is of Kierkegaard philosophy.

I have recently completed another sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. This is a fun project and I enjoy seeing what other artists have come up with their chosen themes.

Another project I am involved with is Howl for UWG(University of West Georgia). This is similar to the Cows on Parade project. Wolf statues will be painted by selected regional artists and then placed around the school campus and the town.

I am also working on a couple of personal commissions (one of which I am being paid with a supply of farm fresh eggs!) and am building a support to mount a pair of works on paper that was recently sold.

We've recently had an addition to extended family as well. My sister gave birth to my nephew Hawkins Gideon Pierce. We are all excited to have another person to corrupt!
So things are busy. I hope I haven't left anything out. Okay! Back to work!!!!!
